Carrera lifts South Carolina over LSU 80-73 in OT

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -- Michael Carrera's 23 points led four
South Carolina players in double figures as the Gamecocks
defeated LSU 80-73 in overtime Wednesday night to give
first-year coach Frank Martin his first Southeastern Conference

Carrera scored 21 points after halftime, including 10 in
overtime, when the Gamecocks (11-5, 1-2) outscored the Tigers

Brenton Williams added 16 points for South Carolina, while RJ
Slawson and Lakeem Jackson each scored 11. Jackson added 11
rebounds to pace all players.

The Tigers (9-5, 0-3) led 69-65 with 2:41 to go before giving up
a layup by Carrera and two free throws by Williams. LSU guard
Anthony Hickey made a steal with the shot clock turned off but
failed to create a shot before Johnny O'Bryant III missed a
game-winning jumper attempt for the Tigers.

LSU shot the 3-pointer effectively to open the second half,
connecting on five of its first seven 3-point tries, including
four by Anthony Hickey, who finished with 18 points. He also
grabbed seven rebounds, had three assists and two steals.

The Gamecocks were able to sustain pressure on the Tigers by
getting into the bonus early in the second half. South Carolina
attempted 37 free throws, connecting on 28. Williams and Carrera
each made 9 of 10 from the stripe.

South Carolina jumped out to an 11-point lead, 34-23, by
capitalizing on 11 LSU turnovers, but the closed the half with a
10-1 run to trail 35-33.

Unlike Saturday's home loss to Florida, when they were
outrebounded 45-34, the Tigers beat South Carolina 40-36 on the
boards. They lost the turnover battle, however, 22-15.
